*Here is how Austin Cline defines "Freethinker" at About.com:
"A freethinker is defined as one who arrives at their beliefs through the use of reason, science, logic, and empiricism rather than by relying on dogma, tradition, and authorities. This definition of freethinker places people squarely in the camp of skeptics, particularly with regard to religion and the supernatural. In theory a freethinker can also be a religious theist, but as a practical matter freethinkers are more likely to be skeptics, secularists, irreligious (http://atheism.about.com/od/Atheist-Dictionary/g/Irreligion-Irreligious-Definition.htm) atheists, and critical atheists."
Please note the location change! It should be nice enough out now to meet at the park.
Business meetings, like the other social meetups, are open to anyone. We'll have discussion after agenda items have been covered.
Bring any topics or current events you'd like to discuss and we'll just have a good time.
After the social part of the meeting, we'll spend the second half on discussion of that month's reading group subject. Everyone is invited to stay for the discussion, whether they did the reading or not.
